The work performed in the Bone Metabolism and Repair group, led by Chantal Chenu, aims at investigating the regulatory and repair mechanisms of bone.

Chantal has a long standing interest in the role of the nervous system in the control of bone turnover and repair. Her work currently focuses on the mechanisms of skeletal pain after osteoporosis, fractures and osteoarthritis and the discovery of novel molecular targets for the development of drugs that decrease skeletal pain. Her group uses clinical studies in patients with vertebral fractures to develop nerve markers measurements in serum, animal models of osteoporosis, fractures and osteoarthritis and cell culture to investigate the interactions between nerves and skeletal cells.
